Common misconceptions: “ I only paid my credit card bill late a few times.” “I have a couple of little collection accounts from college – I’m going to go ahead and pay those off.” “That was from when I was 18, and I paid it off years ago. There’s no way it’s still on my credit report.” “My ex is supposed to be paying that, so I’m not worried about it.”
Common misconceptions: “I don’t need the new fridge right now, but I want to take advantage of the ‘Zero Percent Financing’ special.” “It has a $2000 limit, and I only have $1500 on the card – it’s not maxed out.” “I’ve got too many credit cards – I’m going to transfer all the balances to the one with the 2% interest for 6 months promo.” “I only went over the credit limit once, and it was only by $5. No big deal.” “I’ll just pay those cards off with my HELOC.” “I want to pay this debt off, so I’m going to call the bank and close the account so I don’t use the card.”
Common misconceptions: “I don’t want you to pull my credit report, Ms. Loan Officer, because it’ll hurt my credit.” “OK, I’ll apply for the card to get 15% off.” “It said the credit account was already ‘pre- approved,’ so I just went ahead and activated the card.”
Common misconceptions: “I’ll just close that account – I never use that card anymore, anyway.” “A friend of mine who bought a house said to have Mom add me as an ‘Authorized User,’ and my score will go up immediately!” “I only have had one credit card, ever, so I just need to get another credit card to increase my credit score.”
Student Loans don’t have a big impact on scores unless you don’t pay them. Be careful if you decide to defer your loans!
